From the Central Alberta Humane Society

**PUPDATE – Angel**

Hi everyone! We wanted to send an enormous thank you from the entire team for your generous donations, thoughts and prayers for this sweet girl. We are overwhelmed by your kindness and compassion.

We named this love Angel because oh my…she is the sweetest, and it’s Christmas after all!

Yesterday she spent some time with Dr.Lisa having X-Rays and tests. She has confirmed that she does have an irreparable paralysis in her back end. Her weight and condition is a real concern and so we are looking closely at her tests to be sure that there is no underlying condition that is causing this. She does have a very healthy appetite and is going to the bathroom. It is early days…

Some asked yesterday is if her paralysis has caused incontinence and sadly it has. She is not in any pain. We believe based on her atrophy that she has been this way for some time and has adapted. We also heard yesterday from a number of people who currently have dogs with similar conditions that are living healthy, quality lives with the use of a chair. This gives us all hope for a future for this pup… Please keep Angel in your thoughts and we will continue to monitor her progress, provide healing care and shower her with love on your behalf. ❤️

Please note:
At this time we are unable to comment on the ongoing investigation and what led to her condition.

***Warning***
These images are extremely upsetting, discretion is advised.

This poor girl was just brought into our care from the Town of Sylvan Lake Bylaw and is receiving urgent veterinary diagnosis and care.

She was found outside of an apartment building in the Hinshaw drive area of Sylvan Lake. At this point it is unknown if she has sustained an injury or has a birth defect of some kind. What is known is that she is extremely malnourished and has no feeling in her back end whatsoever. This is clearly a case of neglect and potentially abuse. Any information you can provide will help us to understand her story and will be passed on to Alberta SPCA for further investigation. We don’t know what can be done for this sweet pup at this time but we do know that she is in the best of hands and will be loved.

Call (403)342-7722 if you have any information.

Donations towards treatment and care are appreciated.

Bob Stollings Award presented to 35 year veteran of service to the City of Red Deer

Published on

City of Red Deer Bob Stollings Award winner announced

Each year, The City of Red Deer is proud to celebrate the hard work and dedication of our staff through the annual Employee Recognition Awards. With COVID-19 restrictions in place, how the awards were handed out looked a lot different this year. Awards were personally delivered to each recipient rather than at an evening awards banquet.The awards celebrate long-term service employees and offers special recognition for those who have excelled in innovation, environmental stewardship and exceptional growth.The most anticipated award of the year is the Bob Stollings Memorial Award. This award was established by City Council in 1985 and is presented every year to honour Robert (Bob) E. Stollings, a loyal and dedicated employee of The City of Red Deer from 1960 to 1984. The recipient of this award has displayed outstanding civic performance in alignment with The City’s Cornerstone Values – Respect, Integrity, Service and Excellence. Nominations are submitted by fellow coworkers detailing the employee’s achievements professionally and interpersonally, along with letters of support.

We are proud to announce this year’s Bob Stollings Memorial Award recipient is Char Rausch. She is the Corporate Events Specialist, but has held many roles within The City throughout her more than 35 years of service. From her time with the RCMP, Mayor and City Manager’s Office, Legislative Services and now with Corporate Communications, Char has always brought her dedication to community and never-ending energy, to her work.

“Those who know Char, know the passion, commitment to excellence, and complete care she puts into everything she does,” says Tracy Bruce, Human Resources Manager. “More than 35 years of service, Char has lived our corporate values and we are happy to celebrate her accomplishments by presenting her with the Bob Stollings Award.”
